america and merrill lynch estimates this u.s. exports doubled from the end of 2007 until the end of last year. the major reason is diesel fuel. a strong demand for that product especially in emerging markets. the u.s. exported about 1 million barrels a day of diesel fuel last week, roughly the same we've seen the previous few weeks but up from 840,000 earlier this summer, and the reason for this is that diesel margins are higher than gas margins. as of the mid-year, margins on gulf coast produced diesel were running just above $16 for barrel while for finished gasoline they were just under $8 a barrel. that's roughly double, according to valero. many refiners have done simple things to change their product mix, shell, marathon petroleum and also valero expanding their export terminals ald of and noting that the gulf coast refiners are benefitting from this trend over the east coast refiners. the shipping costs are preventing the east coast refiners from tapping into the domestic oil supplies which is cheaper. east coast has to rely more on international oil, the brent price and make
